Everything I am going to write here will sound insane. However, it is all true. Do think of me what you will, though.
I have just taken a photograph of my feet in my living room and I really don’t think I should have. Don’t worry, I’m not a fetishist. (Especially not with my feet.) However, why I am alarmed is simple.
A few days ago, I had a nap on my sofa and I dreamed of taking this exact photograph.
In the dream photo, one on my feet looked broken. It was swollen and the side of it was black and generally nasty. As I have had a lot of problems with my feet in the past, I took this dream as a warning. In this case, I was careful to walk very carefully everywhere throughout the day.
I still walked my dog, I still went the way we do around the rocky coast. However, I wore my hiking boots (not sandals like I usually do), and by the end of the day, my feet were fine. Then, at about 10pm as I went to visit a friend just around the corner, I tripped on their staircase and ended up breaking my big toe.
Now, I have my own way of dealing with things like this. I don’t go to doctors or ER. It’s just not me and I do seem to heal much faster than other people. However, this morning I realized that I may have done a bit more damage than I anticipated. My whole foot was swollen and it freaked me out a bit.
That said, sometimes I sit down so long working, that my feet tend to do that. (And I have no other signs of things like infection, etc.) In this case, about an hour ago, I decided to take a picture of my foot. My idea was that I will take another tomorrow and another the day after that. This way, I can see objectively if there is any sign of something to worry about.
My problem at present is that just after I had taken my first photo, I realized that I had done exactly what I had done in my original dream. I’d also taken a photo in exactly the same space in my apartment, with the same lighting, and exactly the same visual outcome. - A generally very unwell looking foot.
Naturally, this is causing me some concern. Was my dream a warning that I would break my foot? Or was it a warning that I should be more on-guard than usual tonight? (Since tonight I actually took the photo I did in my dream).
As for why I might want to be more on-guard tonight, I recently have had a kind of stalker problem. That is over now. - I hope, but I am still a bit paranoid about it.
My question, though, is this. I have had premonition dreams and lots of ‘spooky’ experiences in my time. (It’s at the point where nothing surprises me anymore.) However, what is the point of having a premonition or knowing the future if you can’t avoid it?
I did everything I could to avoid a foot injury on the day of my dream, but I still sustained one. Tonight, I can’t practically do anything to avoid whatever other bad things my premonition might have been warning about. (If it was a warning about the time I take the actual photo of my foot, not just breaking it). In this case, having a premonition in the first place seems more like a celestial practical joke.
So, am I missing something? Is the future always inescapable? Or can the future be changed after seeing a glimpse of it? It is a kind of philosophical question. However, the views of real psychics, etc, would be interesting.
